THIS year at the Gold City Brahman Sale, Blackwattle Brahman Stud will proudly be offering 13 top-quality Red Brahman bulls.
The Blackwattle team, lots 189 to 201, is a younger draft than previous years.
The Blackwattle stud is based on highly fertile cows. Brahman cattle were introduced into the beef industry as a breed with insect tolerance, good feed conversion rate and adaptability to the northern climate.
Brahman cattle are also noted for their small birthweight calves.
Since founding Blackwattle Stud in 1974, stud vendors Alan and Penny Wallace have bred to sustain all of these important traits, as well as ensuring the females have a calf each year.
Temperament is of utmost importance within the Blackwattle herd.
"When we sell our 27-month-old grassfed ox, they've never been treated with any chemicals," Mr Wallace said.
"Our sale bulls are treated the same until they begin their sale preparation," he said.
Buyers can expect these important hereditary traits in the cattle offered for sale at the Gold City Brahman Sale on October 12.
"Our vendor's choice bull, lot 189, Blackwattle Abbot 213, shows 144 eye muscle and nine on the rib," Mr Wallace said.
"His sire is The River's Revolution 665 from a Blackwattle Bengy 623 female, The River's Dynasty 687."
